|I'm here, Archie. I've said my piece on Agtalk. I keep my head down and actually grow crops instead of goof around. |
Over the years, I laid out a fundamentally correct system of organic row crop production that can be modified for most areas of the Midwest. My system is a hybrid of Gary Zimmer's, (I worked and lived at Otter Creek) and the Starr Bros from Hastings, NE. (the best farmers I've ever been around).
What we're looking at now is the Rick Clark-ification of organic row crop. Folks have been led astray by one charismatic dude that had success with no till for a year or two because he was transitioning with low weed pressure. I guarantee you that the Rick Clark system will not be successful over time.
I regret that what is viewed as good organic farming these days is the weirdest thing possible that you can actually harvest any intended crop.
Carry on, boys.
